We are hoping to give Leamington town centre’s retailers an added boost in the run up to Christmas.
We will once again be offering free parking in Covent Garden to support Thursday late night shopping and by opening up the HQ car park at Riverside House at weekends.
From this Saturday 17 November until Christmas Eve shoppers will be able to park for free at the Warwick District Council offices on Milverton Hill between 8am and 6pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Late night shoppers can also park for free after 3pm in the Covent Garden Multi-Storey and surface car parks on Thursday 6, 13 and 20 December.
Warwick District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhood Services Councillor Moira-Ann Grainger commented;
“We are aware that there are challenging times for our high streets and I would like to encourage local people to take advantage of the free parking available and support our wonderful selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and venues this Christmas.”
To support its late night opening the Royal Priors Shopping Centre is also offering free parking in its multi-storey car park from 5pm to 8pm on Thursday 6, 13 and 20 December.
The council also wishes to remind visitors to this Sunday’s Leamington Christmas Light Switch event, which takes place on the Parade from 1pm to 5.30pm, that there is free parking in the off-street car parks in Covent Garden, St Peters, Chandos Street and Bedford Street.
